There's more to it than that though. I think people tend to oversimplify music in general. There are other characteristics inherent to different designs. Such as sound staging (depth, width), clarity, imaging, micro-detailing, quality of mids, bass and treble (control). Even on amp/daps where there is supposedly no coloration and the source if flat they still exhibit their own sound characteristics. Now whether or not it is better is totally subjective. I've long since...
 Sh*t... I hope not too. I am not a big fan of touch screen....
Interesting...
 I think toxic has some pretty nice cables for the IE80s. They are a bit more on the pricey side though. I got mine from zeroshoe on ebay when he use to sell pure silver cables. Was like $120 I think? Was definitely a downgrade in portability but I felt the sound it brought was worth it in the end. Depending on how much you might spend on a cable I would really suggest using that money towards and upgrade IEM such as the FX850 or Flat 4 Sui. While the IE80 is a great IEM...
 EQ has never worked for me. Would always end up constantly changing EQ and it would sound off at some point. Just taints the sound. Rather have a flat source that is highly resolving. IMO you won't get the same changes that a cable can bring vs EQ. I've tried, no go.
It's not just about the fit. The IE8/IE80 are very sensitive IEMs. They pick up hiss quite easily. The 8A and To Go 334 are a bit more sensitive though.
No those are from Rankos website.
They probably look like Frankenstein bolts lol :P
 Take it from someone who experienced silver cable making my IE8s sound atrocious. It was a complete turn around after running them in. The IE8s were extremely sibilant, harsh sounding and thin with the new cable. After I ran them in for about 3 or 4 days it sounded so much better. I did not listen to them while they were running in as they sounded that bad. Your opinion is your own but that is my experience. Could care less if you can hear any difference. But I can.
